Test information
Test Information

  • Kindergarten Acceleration means your child will “test out of” the full year of kindergarten curriculum and instruction.

  • In other words, the child has already acquired a great deal of knowledge and academic skills and can demonstrate that through testing.

  • Test content is based on the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) for Kindergarten.

  • There are no study materials available.

Acceleration requirements
Acceleration Requirements

  • Students must score 90 % or above on the district approved assessments in Reading, Language, and Mathematics. The Language portion includes responding to a writing prompt.

  • No partial credit will be given.

Social emotional readiness
Social/Emotional Readiness

Kindergarten Acceleration to first grade goes beyond academic performance.

  • In addition to being academically prepared, it is important that your child be socially and emotionally ready for first grade. The progress of a student accelerated to first grade will be monitored during the first six weeks of school. A recommendation can be made to place the child in Kindergarten at that time.

Testing day
